How to make Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe

  1. To begin making the Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe, heat a heavy bottomed pan.

  2. Add the butter and sugar to it and keep on medium heat and stir. Melt the sugar and butter together and allow the sugar to get a dark golden color. This will take about 5 minutes. Be careful not to burn the sugar. 

  3. Turn off the heat as soon as the sugar turns golden brown in color and starts to smoke and bubble.

  4. Immediately stir in the heavy cream slowly stirring continuously at the same time.

  5. Keep stirring until you get a smooth caramel.

  6. Be careful when you add cream into the caramel as when you add cream the mixture will rapidly bubble and splutter as well. Since the mixture bubbles up, use a little bigger pan to make the caramel sauce in.

  7. Once done add in the vanilla extract, sea salt and stir well to combine.

  8. Let the Salted Caramel Sauce cool and then transfer it to a jar and keep it in fridge in airtight jar.
